Excerpt: [Telling the story on why he got into martial arts] king your firewood and your beer. What? Bro, like out of no where. Its crazy how fast things will switch. So my buddy stands up and he goes ,”no man you are not taking our firewood there is a forest right there You can get your own firewood.” We even invited them to chill with us as well. So next thing you know one of the guys had grabbed one of the beer bottles and smashed my buddy in the back of the head with it. And it actually cut him from the back of the head down to his neck about a mm from his Artery. I think it was 30 staples to put his neck back together.”
